Abstract
"Older People and Their Caregivers Across the Spectrum of Care focuses on two major aspects of elderly care: assessment and caregiving. This book examines assessment techniques and models used by social workers to determine the type and extent of care necessary to meet the needs of the elderly. In addition, it voices recent concerns about the use of standardized models for all senior citizens. Several chapters address the burdens and benefits of being a caregiver whose older relative or friend needs assistance; usually these caregivers are unpaid, not trained, and have other employment and family issues. In this book you will learn about strategies and programs designed to lessen stress and resentment for caregivers."--Jacket.
